List of Quality and Not-so-quality Playdough Recipes. (Can do these with kids for skills sessions.)
Just like **REAL PLAY DOH** but lasts MUCH longer, smells better & costs pennies. Recipe 1 is THE ONE! I make it exactly as stated minus food coloring. When it's done I split it into 4 parts and knead 10 drops gel food coloring into each part. Very vivid and does not stain hands or clothing!

Maybe these questions would get kids talking about school at the end of the day. Great questions for parents to ask kids at the end of the day.... instead of "what did you do today?"

Silly Putty How to! - this is a fantastic blog with lots of fun kid's activities
Cute Kid Stuff
Glow in the Dark Homemade Silly Putty Materials: 1. Glue 2. Glow in the dark paint... we tried several. So far glo away by Plaid gave the best glow. 3. Liquid starch. WHAT DOES LIQUID STARCH LOOK LIKE? Start by putting in 2 ounces of paint or so into a bowl. Add a cup of glue. Add starch until you get the consistency you want.... maybe 1/2 cup. If it's too sticky add starch, to stringy add glue. This can also be stored and saved in a plastic ziploc bag for up to 2-4 weeks depending on your use.
